Description - Can't be Arsed by Richard Wilson

Books, television shows and websites are forever ordering us around - 100 things to do before you're 30; 50 albums you must own; this year's must-have handbag; change your life in two weeks. Why - is this an increasingly desperate search for happiness? What is this obsession with lists, and why should we care? Can���t Be Arsed is a hilarious diatribe from the head of comedy at Hat Trick (producers of Have I Got News For You, Room 101 and Father Ted) that takes a detailed look at the alternative side of the 101 most frequently cited must do's, revealing the ugly details that most of these guidebooks conveniently ignore. It gives off-putting facts and statistics to quote at holier-than-thou thrillseekers, so the next time somebody tells you that you simply must swim with dolphins, read Kafka in Prague, or go skydiving, you can tell them exactly where to get off. Here, at last, is the timely antidote to the plethora of '101 things' books so beloved by vaunting adventurers, to finally make them stop telling us how to live. Wish-fulfilment lists take heed...
